JUNIOR FEVA EVENT
There is again good interest in the 61st running of Schools Week which is happening in June this year. 18 schools have expressed interest in the Senior 420/Firefly event so far, and Alastair Shaw as PRO will be running a similar racing programme to the popular format used last year on the Thursday and Friday, following the day of race training on Wednesday.
We are this year delighted to welcome Ransom Everglades School who have just been selected to represent the USA, the Interscholastic Sailing Association (ISSA) and the South Atlantic Interscholastic Sailing Association (SAISA) and who expect to be bringing 7 or 8 sailors to our regatta and the BSDRA Team Racing finals the following week.
Schools that have expressed an interest so far are:
St Mary Calne
It promises to be a great week and we warmly invite any school that has an interest in joining us to get in touch for more details.
